Slacker.

 

 

Ugh. I know. SUPER slacker. But I’ve got some good stuff in store. I have a Front and Center post from my friend Becca‘s family portrait photographer who is pretty rad and needs some exposure. So, Denver-area peeps, play close attention. Not in the D-town area? No need to fret. She travels.

And THEN … I have a new guest poster who is in the throes of wedding planning. Becca ALSO introduced me to her and her blog, The Thrifty Social Worker, and when I contacted her about possibly guest-starring, she was all about it.

In the meantime, for this slacking blogger, I’ve been trying to work my butt off getting extra work so I can one day stop going into the office (biggest dream EVER).

So, I promise kiddos, that I will return my attention to you and all will once again be right again.

Detail: Bling.

I had a pretty eclectic mix of jewelry. Some was passed down, some I’ve not taken off in years, some was custom made. And it all rocked.

The Cape Cod (or Dennis) bracelets I never take off.

My aunt Ellen gave me this ring. My mother had given it to her on her wedding day.

My Precious.

Our wedding bands were customized and purchased off of Etsy. For $25 each.

The white pearls were my mother's. I had the turquoise ones commissioned on Etsy.

The woman who made the turquoise pearls threw in these earrings.

Time.

No matter how much you plan and organize and delegate and reorganize and micromanage your wedding day, time is a squirrely little beast. Hell, not just the day. THE WHOLE PLANNING PROCESS.

I had ours worked out pretty well. I figured my hair and makeup would take a couple hours, max, and with the ceremony slated to start at 5:30, I thought 2 would be juuuust fine for Mara to show up and begin the process.

HA.

My hair and makeup took right up until 10 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start. Apparently my hair refuses to cooperate, even when full of schlagoo to make it work. The finger waves I’d decided on for my bangs? Yeah, no. It took a good two hours of my hair in rollers, bobby pins, curling irons, etc., before we literally said “eff it and just make it not be in my face.” Seriously, I had such a minimal amount of time to get into my dress, much less take portraits with my side before the ceremony. However, Kat was able to get lots of great detail shots, since there are only so many photos you can get of curled hair.

And then!!! The ceremony was longer than I expected (I read it aloud and with Aussie no less than five times. Each time it took 15 minutes). And we were swept up with photos. And family.
Our 6:30 reception arrival? Try 7:15. It was still an effing blast, though. Impromptu karaoke, anyone?

Planning on planning your day is difficult. Working with your photographer is necessary. We lucked out in that we had Kat and Justin for a couple of days, so we got lots of nifty shots. But there were many I was a bit sad not to get. No matter, just poor planning on my behalf.

Morgan at Morgan Trinker Photography posted a fantastic guideline to planning your day. Really, seriously read it. And make sure that even if you think your photographer knows the key shots to get, you spell it out. Because, let’s face it, no one’s really a mind reader.

No one is saying you have to get up at 6:30 in the morning for a 5:30 p.m. ceremony, but give yourself a bit of wiggle room. We did a great outing in the morning with our friends and I was pretty good to go as far as getting ready by noon. But, my hair is a stubborn little bitch and hindered the progress. Which, honestly, I should have known.

Front and Center: Cali Sparing Photography

Cali, based in Bozeman, Mont., is an old friend. In fact, she’s Ashley‘s cousin and we used to play together and go camping. When I found out she is now a wedding photog, I begged her to let me do a spotlight on her. She was more than compliant. A perky little redhead, Cali manages to take ethereal and intriguing images that invoke the love her clients are feeling for one another. Cali writes …

My approach to photography is simple. It’s vibrant, genuine, and enjoyable. I capture the little moments that pass us by, and turn them into everlasting memories. I strive to have my photographs tell a story…your story. I want to capture you for you, and at the same time make it REALLY REALLY FUN!

Also? She travels and is uber keen on doing a destination wedding!

Here’s a Jumping Photo I Can *almost* Get Behind.

We all know how I feel about jumping photos.

But … this one featured on Ruffled today is pretty rad.
